Give Water, People!

Give a little, change a lot. Got ten bucks? Want to save some lives? Give Water

  • More than 1 in 6 people in the world don't have access to safe drinking water.
  • 1 out of every 4 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease.
  • Nearly 80% of illnesses in developing countries are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions.
  • Lack of water claims more lives than any war
  • Every day more than 4,000 children in developing countries die, simply because they don't have clean drinking water
  • More children die from diarrheal illnesses like cholera and dysentery than from HIV/AIDS or malaria combined.
  • But, for only $10, you can fix that for one person... for ten years!
Donate ten dollars to the Water Project and provide water for one person for ten years. It doesn't get any simpler than that. Give Water, people!
